Sidney Crosby C PIT 2 Days

Crosby scored his ninth goal of the season and added two assists in a 3-2 OT win over Boston on Monday.

Crosby was reunited with Patric Hornqvist and potted a goal less than four minutes into the game with Hornqvist on the ice. The three-point effort snapped a two-game pointless streak and gave Crosby one more point than he'd totaled in his last six contests. The Pittsburgh captain benefited from the absence of Zdeno Chara, but given his struggles of late he'll surely take whatever he can get.

Crosby was held pointless with two hits and one blocked shot Friday. He finished with plus-1 against the Islanders.

The superstar failed to register at least one shot on goal for the first time since April 5 in Minnesota, a span of 33 games. He skated 20:48 TOI and won 12 of 21 faceoffs, but was unable to point against New York on a night the Pens weren't awarded a single power play.

Crosby snapped an eight-game goalless streak with a power-play marker in Montreal on Tuesday.

The power-play goal was his first since Oct. 16, a span of 14 games. Pittsburgh recently moved Patric Hornqvist off Crosby's line, replacing him with Pascal Dupuis, but with Dupuis out Tuesday Blake Comeau took his place. Crosby's numbers have fallen off a bit -- he went pointless in three of five games before Tuesday -- but that simply puts the Islanders on alert for Friday's tilt.

Crosby tied a career high with five assists -- including two on the power play -- Saturday against the Sabres.

He registered all of his points in the first half of Saturday's tilt and missed adding to that total on several opportunities. The Pens' top line was clicking after getting shut out Thursday and Buffalo bore the brunt of the anger. Crosby now leads the NHL with 24 points (7G, 17A) in 13 games.

An empty-net assist extended Crosby's point streak (3G, 7A) to five games Tuesday against the Wild.

He skated only 16:26 -- including 2:56 PP TOI -- on a night in which the Penguins totaled four minutes and nine seconds of power-play time. The game belonged to Pittsburgh's third line (which scored two even-strength goals), lightening the usual load for the team's top-six forwards.

Crosby collected three assists, including two on the man advantage, Saturday against the Sabres.

He now has more assists (11) than games played (10) and 18 points, overall. Newcomer Patric Hornqvist's right-handed shot has given Crosby and the Pens a new weapon both at even strength and on the power play -- Pittsburgh's captain has taken full advantage of his new weapon.

Crosby collected his second consecutive game-winning goal Tuesday, finishing with a pair of goals, six shots and a plus-2 rating against the Devils.

The captain did a little bit of everything Tuesday, winning 12 of 16 faceoffs. He now has seven goals and seven assists in eight games, including seven points on the man advantage.

Crosby scored his first game-winning goal of the season while adding a pair of power-play assists Saturday.

Crosby was in jeopardy of going three games without a point for the first time since 2009. He scored just six minutes and 21 seconds into the contest and never looked back. The Pittsburgh captain took several hard checks in Week 3 but didn't miss a shift. He'll get three home games in the coming week.

Despite taking five shots on goal, Crosby went pointless for the second straight game Thursday.

The Penguins captain missed on a third-period breakaway which would've given his team a 4-1 lead. Crosby remains stuck on nine points (4G, 5A), including three at even strength and six on the power play. He'll look to get back on track Saturday in Nashville.

Crosby became the sixth-fastest player to reach 500 assists Saturday, picking up a pair of power-play helpers in his 544th career contest.

He has four goals and nine points (including five on the man advantage) in four games, tying the fastest start in his 10 NHL seasons. Crosby already has as many goals in four games as he did in the team's final 25 games of 2013-14 (including the playoffs).
